Joy to the World

"Joy to the World" er en engelsk julesang. Teksten er skrevet af Salmedigteren Isaac Watts i 1719, mens melodien er komponeret af Lowell Manson i 1839.

Joy to the World! The Lord is come;
Let Earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare him room;
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven, and heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the earth! the savior reigns;
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make his blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as, the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness,
And wonders of his love,
And wonders of his love,é
And wonders, wonders, of his love.
